Kids Academy Releases Preschool Education Center
for iOS and Android!
I was really excited to find out about the new Kids Academy app that focuses on preschool math, reading and writing skills! Kids Academy has updated the app to include new games and stories as well as a version for Android devices as well. Since my kids are always asking to use their iPads I try my best to find apps that are educational and fun so that they’re excited about learning as they play. Kids Academy really hits the mark with this app. Before I get into all the reasons that I love it I want to make one thing very clear: Kids Academy is free, but most of the content is locked until you subscribe. The monthly cost is $7.99, which I think is really reasonable for the content you’re getting. Not only do you have access to tons of games, children can also access story books in the library, and watch movies in the Kids TV section. Of course Kids Academy also offers printable worksheets (You can find the link to some great free ones at the bottom of this post). Overall, the app is a great tool for parents who want educational choices on their child’s iPad, and for the price we are really happy with the content we receive. Another thing I love: while the app does prompt you often to subscribe for content, you can only do so by performing certain actions (press and hold a button for three seconds or swipe up with one finger, etc), so it is not easy for children to access the parent only section of the app. As someone who recently received a $500 bill from iTunes for “game money” in another app, I really appreciate that Kids Academy has taken steps to prevent children from unintentionally subscribing! Now, on to the specifics about Kids Academy and their new app!
The Preschool Education Center is an all-in-one educational app created for children and toddlers by the team at Kids Academy! With already over 10 million downloads worldwide, they have just released a long-awaited update to this amazing app! The app is designed to cover all aspects of early childhood education. Children learn about the alphabet, reading, writing, building vocabulary and even developing math skills. Based on the proven Montessori method, the Preschool Education Center app offers a number of fun games that help master essential learning skills through play, making learning fun!
I really love this app! The bright colors and fun characters keep my three year old entertained as he learns to trace letters and recognize numbers. I enjoy knowing that the games will grow with him and that he can see his progress with the awards. I love the library and kids TV sections as well as he enjoys listening to the stories and watching the shows when he’s done playing. In the couple of weeks that we’ve been using Kids Academy my son has learned to identify numbers and letters easily, which is really exciting to see. Of course, we use the worksheets when we want some “offline” play and it’s great that Kids Academy offers a way to keep learning when screen time is over. We use them when his older brothers are doing their homework so that he can sit at the table and “work” just like them!
Until now, Preschool Education Center has only been available on iTunes but now it is finally available for Android devices on Google Play! This fun and free app is currently being featured in the Family section of the Android store in the USA, Australia and Canada.
Kids Academy have also updated the iOS version of the app: Preschool & Kindergarten Early Learning Games adding new games, books and educational cartoons and shows as well as printable worksheets.
